The Cricket Pod: South Africa's unscarred youth give them World Cup hope
The Proteas led by Faf du Plessis will be a tougher lot in the May 30-July 14 tournament in England and Wales
This week, cricket journalist Tristan Holme talks to The Cricket Pod co-hosts Paul Radley and Chitrabhanu Kadalayil about the state of South African cricket.
Faf du Plessis' side have excelled on the field, crushing Pakistan in a home Test series recently, with their youth giving them plenty of hope in the short term (read World Cup) as well as over the long haul.
Holme details the challenges Cricket South Africa faces both within the organisation and outside, even as the game itself is managing to appeal beyond its traditional base.
